This text contains 25 Project-Based Learning (PBL) lessons written by a combination of undergraduate preservice teachers, inservice teachers, and graduate students. Everyone who wrote a chapter strives to improve STEM education to help others implement standards-based STEM instruction that takes learning in isolation to greater accountability through integrated and meaningful tasks that answer the question every teacher dreads: When am I going to use this? The PBLs were written to implement in middle and high-school classrooms. All of them are interdisciplinary in nature. We have divided them into six themes: construction and design, water, environment, mixtures, technology, nutrition and genetics. Each lesson contains a a€œschedule at a glancea€ and the a€œwell-defined outcomea€ so you can quickly see how a particular PBL fits into your curriculum. Objectives are listed along with STEM connections written as objectives. We have included all materials needed and then each day of activities including an imbedded engagement, exploration, explanation, evaluation (including rubrics), and extension. We have tried to include everything necessary for successful implementation. This practical book is the perfect companion to the handbook for learning about implementing PBLs: Project-Based Learning: An Integrated Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Approach a€“ second edition.Mathematics a€“ The student is expected to: a€“ Use tools to determine measurements of geometric figures and extend measurement concepts to find perimeter, area, and volume in problem situations. a€“ Calculate surface areas and volumes of prisms, pyramids, spheres, cones, cylinders, and composites of these figures in problem situations. a€“ Calculate areas of regular polygons, circles, and composite figures. a€“ Analyze the relationship between three-dimensional geometric figures andanbsp;...
